The public will soon be able to view streams of administrative disciplinary hearings for police officers in Baltimore City.
Police Commissioner Kevin Davis announced the plans along with additional reforms to improve the disciplinary system within the police department.
As reported in The Baltimore Sun:
“Much has been said, written and reported recently about shortcomings with discipline and accountability,” Davis said. “I hear and profoundly understand those concerns and that’s why I made several changes over the last six months —tangible, real progress that will benefit the vast, vast majority of Baltimore police officers who absolutely and consistently do the right thing.”
“It’s important to know that they can go to their police department and observe an administrative hearing board because quite often, it’s a very serious charge and the community wants to know that their police department has their best interest at heart,” Davis said.
